Summary/Abstract: This is the first part of a two-part article aiming to present a contrastive survey of stress assignment in Advanced Standard Copenhagen Danish and Urban East Norwegian. The goal is to establish which of the apparent differences and similarities are inherent in the languages and which stem from the differences between the analyses and theoretical approaches that have been applied to them in existing descriptions.; Part 1 discusses the levels of stress and the patterns of stress in simplex words, it is argued that in both languages, the rules governing stress placement in simplicia can be modelled in similar ways, and that this can be done within the framework of metrical phonology; however, certain differences are also highlighted, especially as regards the connection between stress and quantity.
